the case went all the way to the u.s. supreme court which upheld the city's authority to force miss kelo to sell her property. this is about 90 minutes. >> good afternoon, welcome to the cato institute. my name is roger pilon. i'm the director of center for constitutional studies which is hosting today's book forum. most believe the right to property is sacred and they have the right to do so because the constitution says nor shall private property shall be taken for private use without just compensation. they think their home is their castle. a phrase that stems from the 17th century jurist lord cook. unfortunately, over the course of the 20th century, that right to private property has been slowly eroded by a series of decisions that have come from the state supreme courts and the u.s. supreme court. early on in the area of regulatory takings, and more recently in the area of the full use of eminent domain whereby government condemns a person's property, not for use by the public but rather to transfer the title to another private owner for the purpose of economic development, and

us? >> i have the section you were referring to about the mock executions. it deals with one of the high value detainees, the alleged planner of the uss cole attack that killed 17 sailors. it says that a handgun and a power drill were held close to his head, and then it goes on to talk about this incident with the firing of a gun in an adjacent cell. 4 give me, because some of this is redacted, so the language may seem a little bit awkward. it reads, " [blank] stage to the incident, which included screaming and yelling by other officers and guards. when the guards removed the detainee from the room, they passed a guard dressed as a hooded detainee lying motionless on the ground and made to appear as if he had been shocked." -- as if he had been shot." earlier in the report, there is confirmation that in the case of the self-described architect of 9/11 and abd al nashiri -- both men were threatened with harm against their families. specifically with khalide sheikh mohammed -- he was told if anything else happen in the united states, they would kill his children. these are just
potential for the future. to all those who are idle in the cities and industries of america let us provide new hope for the dignity of useful work. democrats have always believed that a basic civil right of all americans is their right to earn their own way. the party of the people must always be the party of full employment.
